never depend on corporate,fanboys or self claimed pros on the games for reviews, if you want the honest truth go the game forums and read what people who bought have to say on the game, for ex civilization 5 is great game based on scores etc but go to the official forums and steam forums and read what the people who bought the game have to say, you will be shocked, same story on f12010
How often are those people pleased? Every game forum I have visited has had a considerable amount of "whiners". I get the feeling certain number of people will always be raging about something. Even when the general consensus is that a game sucks there will be a similiar population who still like it
And in the end, no game is perfect so that's understandable. Plus most people won't bother giving feedback if they're satisfied
Usually, people who frequent forums are the minority with problems or who whine, loudly. Games like GTA4, who has masses of problems on the PC, was rightly vilified on forums, but always, always
take negative comments on a forum thread with a little salt. It's very easy to troll them, and if we are talking about the steam forums, well it's more or less a home for whiners.
